[Liked Songs] Shuffle button resets when switching back to liked songs

[Liked Songs] Shuffle button resets when switching back to liked songs

When I have shuffle toggled on in Liked songs, then switch to another playlist, then switch back to liked songs, shuffle will be toggled off. This only occurs when I control playback from my Spotify app on iOS. I tested on desktop version, and this issue doesn't occur.

Example problem flow: start in liked songs (shuffle on) --> switch to Playlist B (shuffle on) --> switch back to liked songs (shuffle off now).

Device version: 8.9.12.541

This is very annoying 😞

I'm having the same issue, also on iOS. The issue seems to be any time I exit the liked songs playlist, when I return to the playlist it resets to shuffle off. I verified it was upon returning to the playlist as I had the desktop client opened, and when I opened up my liked songs on my phone it reset it both on the app and the desktop to not shuffled. The issue also occurs when I set it as shuffled on desktop and open on my phone, they both get reset.

The issue does not persist on smart shuffle, however that as the issue of the queued songs always being the same so I cant even use that sadly atm.

I’m having this problem too and just want it fixed. I always keep shuffle on but the past two weeks it will turn itself off on my iPhone and in the car in Apple play. I turn it on, but every time I open the app again it’s turned off and it’s driving me crazy. I tried restarting my phone but no luck. It’s not encouraging that I had to dig through multiple menus to find the “answer” to submitting this as an issue is to just post about it on a glorified message board. That doesn’t even display properly on my phone.  And I can’t se what I’m typing because of these stupid menus covering the text box. 

Using version 8.9.12.541

on iOS and apple CarPlay. 

Hi there folks,

Thanks for reaching out to the Community.

First up, we'll need to gather some info in case we have to report the situation:
 

  • Make, model, and exact OS version on the device you're experiencing this with.
  • What troubleshooting steps have you tried to fix the issue (e.g., a reinstallation, a soft reset, a different account)?
  • Did you notice if this started to happen after a specific event such as an OS update? 

Additionally, it'd be really helpful if one of you could send a video recording of this behavior. You can attach it in your next reply in mp4 format, or you can also upload it to YouTube or Google Drive and make it public.

We'll be here.
